Okay so here's the deal:
A striking scorpion exarch with scorpions claw (powerfist) has a strength of 3 but get +1 strength for his scorp chainsword. What's his strength with the power fist?
Do I double the strength before or after applying the +1?
This may be answered in a FAQ but since GW changed their site I can't seem to fin anything...

I don't know what the official answer is but I think common sense dictates that the power fist doubles the base strength as the +1 comes from the chainsword (therefore the exarch is using one hand for the chainsword and one as a power fist)

A scorpion exarch with a fist strikes at strength 6. You do not get to combine weapons.
Okay thanks alot!

I can't find the official word about this question; the rule that you double the model's Strength stat as found in the statline, THEN add the extra bonus or bonuses was made clear in the 4th Ed rulebook on P.46 but this statement is *not* included in the 5th Ed rulebook on P.42.
Has this ruling therefore been removed, meaning that anyone with a Powerfist and Furious Charge will strike at Init 1 with 2x(statline strength+1) in the first round of combat and then 2x(statline strength) thereafter in the same combat?

The +1 S comes from another special weapon, not a special rule or piece of wargear, so you can't use both together. Were it like the mandiblasters though where it's just a seperate piece of wargear, then it would stack after the 2x of the Pfist.
